Open Concept Living Room & Kitchen

As I mentioned last week, we bought at second home in Florida a little over a year ago.  My daughter is a highly nationally ranked tennis player and she has been training in Florida and playing many tournaments down here, so it made sense to buy a second home.

In this home we have an open concept living room and kitchen.  It's kinda cool.  I enjoy making breakfast in the morning and having the big screen television from the living room right there. 
We continued the blue and white color scheme throughout the majority of the house.  It really makes the house flow well.  I rigged the lamps to work off of Alexa  - which is awesome when I get home I just ask Alexa to turn on the lamps.
A dining room credenza acts as a television unit and is flanked by a glass bookcase and a large faux tree.  The area rug was an awesome find at Home Goods on my last trip down here in January.  Open and airy is the look we are going for - nothing too heavy looking.  
It actually gets quite chilly in this house, so a throw became a necessity.  This throw is a faux fur throw from Dennis Basso and gets used all the time.  The lamps are Home Goods finds as well.
There are two options for dining in the kitchen...either at the counter or at the kitchen table.  Even when it's just me and my daughter we seem to use both areas equally.
The kitchen is a nice size for a second home.  It's plenty large to work in on a daily basis.  I like that the counter stools don't have a back so they take up very little visual space.
Here is the view of the living room from the kitchen.  Open concept all the way!  The clock is a find from Target.
Hope you've enjoyed the tour of my Florida home living room and kitchen.  Can't wait to hear what you think.

Navy and Beige Master Bedroom

A little over a year ago we bought a second home in Florida.  My daughter is a highly ranked national tennis player and often trains in Florida.  As we spent more and more time in Florida, it made sense to buy a second home there.  We are in Florida for the next two weeks so I thought I would do a tour of this home.  What better place to start than the master bedroom.
We bought new construction in a gated community.  Timing is everything and this home was partially furnished by the builder since they were finishing up the development and wanted to sell quickly.  The color scheme of this room was dictated by the custom drapes and pictures picked out by the builder's decorator.  
I chose the bedding.  I love this navy and beige bedding from Pottery Barn.  It's not too masculine or feminine.  The toss pillows on the bed are from Marshall's.  The bedside lamps are from Target.  
The chair was a find from Home Goods.  Home Goods has become my home away from home over the past year.  The toss pillow is from Target.
The floor lamp is also from Target and completes this side of the room.
The feel and tone of this home is different, as it should be, from our New York home.  The furniture is much less traditional and more transitional.  I've been having fun decorating in a totally different style.  Make sure to stop back as I will be showing off the rest of the home in the coming days.
